Northumberland coastal hub unveils final units in £4.5m leisure scheme

A Northumberland coastal hub has unveiled two more lettings at a forthcoming £4.5m retail and leisure scheme.

Blyth’s South Beach will be home to the development on Links Road, which is set to launch in November.

Developer Blagdon Estates has already agreed leases with Co-op, Greggs, Shorelocks hair and beauty salon and fast-food restaurant ChickPizz, all of whom will begin fitting out later this year.

Jonathan Chapman, associate director at @retail, said: “Interest in the scheme has been building strongly and to have only two units available at this stage of the development is fantastic.

“We have attracted a great mix of occupiers, who are all very excited by the scheme’s potential, largely thanks its coastal location in what is a very popular area of Northumberland.”

The two remaining opportunities include a mid-terrace ground floor unit of 1,000 sq ft and a first-floor area providing 4,400 sq ft of open plan floor space which the developer says will be an ideal venue for a spectacular destination restaurant.

Stuart Hall, director at Kingsmead Developments, development partner with Blagdon Estates, added: “The construction phase has been progressing very well so we have now completed the steelwork and the first-floor slab, making it much easier for prospective occupiers to visualise what can ultimately be achieved.

“The first-floor space has stunning views overlooking the beach and to the west, so it really could be something very special. We want to find the right occupier for this space, an ambitious business that can make the most of its roadside prominence and huge potential.”

Sunderland-based building and civil engineering firm BRIMS Construction is delivering the South Beach development as main contractor on behalf of Blagdon Estates.
